2008
Oil Spill, 622 Main Street (Box 22-1)
Detail >>
At the request of Chief 22-2 on the scene, Engine 22 was dispatched class one to the 600 block of Main Street for an oil spill. A vehicle driving through the square had an engine oil pan perforated by a thrown rod, dumping oil for about 100 feet until the driver was able to pull off to the side of the road. Engine 22 responded with a crew of six, and spread high-dry on the spill to soak up as much oil as possible from the street. Main Street, from Market Street to Spruce Street, was closed to traffic during the cleanup. PSP on the scene contacted a tow service for the damaged car. After cleanup, the street was re-opened for traffic and the engine went available.

This accident occurred in front of the residence of Chief 22-1, who came out and found three vehicles involved. The patient on the roadway was actually in the mini-market parking lot where he had exited his own vehicle and laid down. Engine 22 responded with 4, Rescue 23 responded with 4, and two company 22 members responded POV to the scene. On arrival, three vehicles were found to be involved with extensive damage, and the roadway blocked. EMS from Medic 6 were treating the patients, and crews split up and assisted with triage and also scene safety and control. PSP was also on scene, and fire police from 22 and 23 had traffic re-routed away from the accident scene.
